Labour Scare!

// September 20th, 2001 // No Comments » // Life

Had a bit of a labour scare last night – Jan started getting strange pains in her belly – we decided they might be contractions but luckily they subsided after about an hour. A little test run perhaps? Anyway it is all very motivating to get the capsule put into the car! Went to see Bridget Jones’ Diary last night and enjoyed it very much – I have an increased respect for Renee Zellweger as she was great. Have been obsessively playing Tony Hawk 2 on my Playstation and getting blisters from the controller! I hope soon to be back to my nicely calloused thumbs though.

Karen sent me a link to the Australian Vaccination Network – a site with a lot of information about the risks of vaccination. So many things to worry about!

Anxious

Am in a bit of an anxious state at the moment – this whole looming war thing is getting to me! I guess we are a lot safer down here in the Antipodes than in Europe, the U.S. or Afghanistan but am still wishing I was back in New Zealand which somehow feels even more remote. My brother Sam yesterday sent me a great commentary by Tamim Ansary, a writer and columnist in San Francisco who is a native of Afghanistan. It’s both interesting and chilling…. read it here.

Jan has finished work and is living a life of leisure – not! She went to see the midwife yesterday who said that Little Jem was ‘very organised’ – head engaged, all positioned correctly – ready to pop! We still haven’t got a cot. Saw one I loved in the weekend but it was $525, plus another $100 for the mattress. I just can’t seem to justify that to myself!

Went to see A.I. over the weekend and thought it very bizarre…. a strange hodge podge of Kubrick and Spielberg. Even though I didn’t like it much it has still stayed in my mind, something that I have found before with Kubrick films so maybe it does still retain the soul of the bearded one.

Fellowship

New Lord of the Rings poster has been released (for the first movie, Fellowship of the Ring)… oooh it’s lookin’ good! I am very excited about this flick, even more than the Harry Potter movie I think.
